Dr. Randy Wolcott has been practicing medicine for almost thirty years and focusing on treating ďunhealableĒ wounds the last twelve. His personal research at the Wound Care Centerís Research and Testing Laboratories and his collaboration with biofilm experts in the wound care field have earned him international recognition. His work has been published in textbooks as well as prominent journals like the Journal of the American Medical Association and Journal of Wound Care.
His clinic treats not only surface wounds, but the underlying causes that include poor circulation and insidious bacterial biofilms that prevent healing. By using ďtwo stageĒ molecular diagnostics, they assess what bacteria are present in the wound bed. More importantly, their diagnostic data reveals the presence of biofilm and a ďlistĒ of both bacterial and non-bacterial microbes which create highly polymicrobial biofilm communities that form the foundation of chronic infections.
Knowing the components of the complex biofilm-based infection helps the medical staff customize the solution for the patient: highly personalized topicals, antibiotics and dressings that treat the wound. All of these services work together to facilitate healing, saving the patientsí limbs, reducing healing time and saving Medicare large sums of money.
I met ďRandyĒ and his staff in October of 2010 and interviewed him, staff members and patients to get a sense of how advanced their diagnostic & treatment methods really were. I do believe that their treatment approach has set a new (and badly needed) standard of care for treating chronic wounds and this observation is surely validated by witnessing his patients' recoveries.
